Now that Google has sold Motorola to Lenovo, it’s led to an interesting turn of events for the Nexus series of phones that were so far being built by Motorola for Google.
The Nexus 10 is now out of stock at the Play Store and it’s likely to soon witness an update. At the same time, the much speculated Nexus 8 now has a more certain release date. So, what do we know about the next Nexus release?
Reports suggest that new Nexus handset, either a Nexus 5 or Nexus 6, will be constructed by Moto-novo. While ironically, Google will sell its venture before the build of next Nexus series commences.
Nexus series are usually released in Autumn, which requires that the R&D of the device is done well in advance. Nexus 6 was under development when Motorola thrived under Google and the exchange wouldn’t have affected the plans.
If you are hoping to see the Nexus 8 release date soon, it’s newsworthy that Asus has partnered with Google for this Nexus 7 successor. Google undoubtedly wishes to continue its phenomenal relation with the Taiwan company.
Finally, the Nexus 10 was a great device with splendid display. However, it failed to make a mark. Rumors suggest that Google may partner with HTC to release the next Nexus 10 series. Regardless of the low margin available on the Nexus series, they are extremely popular and will render a big turnover for HTC.… Read the rest
This may not come as great news to Nexus tablet enthusiasts. The buzz is that Nexus 10 2 release will never happen, as Google has no interest in launching the second version of Nexus 10.
This rumor has stemmed out from known analyst Edgar Murtazin’s tweet, which said that Google has no interest in going ahead with its Nexus tablet devices as it is shifting its focus on Google Play edition programs.
Nexus fans are disappointed that Google is not going ahead with the release of Nexus 10 2 tablet. DigiTimes reported that the Google supply chain sources are saying that instead of giving green light to Nexus 10 2 devices, Google is shifting its focus to 8-inch niche market for the Nexus 8 tablet.
Google wants to go against Apple iPad Mini and it is expected that the 8-inch offring from Google will hit the market in second quarter of 2014. Reportedly, the reason for Nexus 10 2 cancellation is bad sales of Nexus 7 2. Apple iPad Mini and Apple iPad Air have emerged as a strong contenders and low-end features of Nexus 7 2 could not beat what Apple has to offer in its tablets.
So, it seems for now Google will stick to Google Play edition programs and may roll out a mid-level nexus 8 tablet. Let us know your thoughts.
The recent rumors regarding the Nexus 10 2 release and feature suggest that just like the new Samsung Tablets Pro line, Nexus 10 2 may sport a 12-inch screen.

Recent reports said that Google would be launching Nexus 10 2 at CES 2014; however, there was no sign of the tablet throughout the event.
Now that Samsung has launched its Note Pro and Tab Pro line, it may happen that Google will add more features to its offering. According to reports by IBTimes.com.au, “Since reports stated that Samsung will be the maker of the second generation of Nexus 10, there were talks that the tablet may come with a bigger screen display and may ditch the menu button similar to what Samsung did to its new devices.
